(1921 - 2006)
Daiwon Lee was active/lived in South Korea. Daiwon Lee is known for landscape painting.
Lee Dai-won was a renowned and influential modernist in Korean 20th Century painting. Trained as a lawyer, Lee was inspired by the French modernists, including especially the inventive Fauvist colorists such as Henri Matisse and Andre Derain.

This work then stems from his earliest, formative years. Mountai ... Displaying 750 of 2465 characters.
